Federal Policy

The League of American Bicyclists represents the voices of everyday bicyclists in the halls of Congress, to federal agencies, and with national partners in Washington D.C.

We seek to ensure the most bicycle-friendly policies, regulations, and funding priorities to enable state and local governments to get more people riding — and riding safely.

In 2021, Congress passed a five-year Transportation bill, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. Heading into 2022, the League is championing the voice of bicyclists on Capitol Hill and at the state and local level to ensure this next transportation bill is implemented to create a future that makes biking better for everyone.

We do this by bringing bicyclists together for the National Bike Summit each year, but our work with Members of Congress is year-round. We have a consistent presence on Capitol Hill, speaking up for your rights and informing you of federal developments.

Want to help us advocate for bicycling on Capitol Hill? Sign up for our Action Alerts.

And we work in partnership with numerous coalitions and partner organizations, including the Transportation Equity Caucus, the Transportation Alternatives Coalitions, and others, to grow and expand the movement for better bicycling for all.
